State rankings

Rankings for web accessibility errors in Higher Education for each state and territory in the US. Errors include detectable errors and contrast errors found by the WAVE engine. The sample attempts to include every Higher Ed institution inside the US with .edu domain.

Rankings were determined by calculating the median of each institution's average detectable errors per page.

Errors Per Page is the total number of errors across all institutions in the state divided by the total number of pages scanned from that state.
